minutes on his schedule to deliver a quick speech at the u.n., however declined to meet with a single world leader while on the ground. that makes him the first president in more than two decades to avoid his counterparts on a u.n. trip. in addition, he uttered the word "terrorist" only once today. ironically the same amount of times that he tweeted about the ongoing nfl/referee labor dispute. it's statistics like these that show where the president's priorities lie. let's see, whoopi goldberg and joy behar, trumping benjamin netanyahu. if you needed more proof that this president is not interested in siding with our allies in israel, it came yesterday. this is the american delegation listening to mahmoud ahmadinejad delivering his remarks, the same remarks where he said that israel will be eliminated. our representatives were patiently listening to on monday. oh, by the way, we're learning from reports that iran is test-firing missiles, ones that are designed to hit warships. by the way, the iranians are bragging to the world that they've developed long-range drones capable of carryi
that they have policies there that don't work. i think it's lying. he goes to the u.n. and says video, video, video, video after his own people before he went to the u.n. had begun to acknowledge that it was a terrorist attack. that to me is disingenuous. frankly what is puzzling is what they could possibly have thought they would gain by going through this. i think that just reinforces the incompetent component. >> greta: you know, i've been to think what could possibly be the explanation, because, i mean, it is bizarre that the american people weren't told. i mean, everybody was sort of suspicious, you know, because of when it happened, although, you know, the facts may bear out something different, but naturally it looked like it from the get-go. i'm wondering if there's a political advantage, that he thinks it's better if we think al-qaeda is pretty much finished and have al-qaeda rear its ugly ahead even as a relationship to this group, if that's politically unattractive, i mean that is a possibility? >> greta, i have no idea what this president does or doesn't -- why this president doe

(laughter) the event has s a gathering in the international juggalos. with libya in turmoil, syria in flames, iran on the verge of a nuclear weapon, an incredible opportunity for our president not just to address the world community but for some high-level pres-on-pres action. >> the white house says he has no plans to have any private leadings with world leaders. >> jon: oh. (laughter) well, that's-- probably protocol. it's not the time for one-on-one meetings with other world leaders! >> our research shows it's been 20 years since a president has been to that meeting and not met one on one with a foreign leader.

peters is the author of a new book. president was a little tougher in his rhetoric in speaking to the u.n. but he did not go so far to call the terror attacks, he did defend free speech before the united nations and when speaking on "the view", he talked about how we are going to hunt down those who did this. he will do everything to make sure that our embassies are protected. what are your thoughts? >> well, it would've been nice if he could've seen that the embassies were protected before it our ambassador was murdered. but i am for anything taught that obama does. but he has to live up to the words. i was actually struck by things he did not say in his speech. first of all, on free speech, it's fine to stand up and talk about free speech and the importance of americans with that. but the administration will not let our intelligence community use the word islamist terrorists in reports. if you notice, he dances around it. when it came to iran, he said, again, we will do whatever it takes. but he could not back him he could not bring himself to add, including military force to stop the n
nations, president obama spoke before the united nations general assembly. it was his final u.n. address of this term. and the problems in and around the middle east dominated both speeches as the president and governor romney addressed everything from iran's nuclear program to the attack that killed our ambassador in libya. ed henry is our chief white house correspondent and toking president obama. both men really duking it out on foreign policy all of a sudden. >> that's right. one city, two candidates and two different visions. it's clear that mitt romney is charging that the president is sitting on the side line, not active enough in the middle east. the president, as you noted, his suggestion is look, you can't dictate the facts on the ground in the middle east. some of this has to play out. where we see that most acutely is on iran where mitt romney is suggesting we should be more aggressive, maybe use military action. the president today said give sanctions some more time to work. although he added this caveat. >> that's why a coalition of countries is holding their iranian govern
-west rhetoric today at the united nations. the president of ahmadinejad took the podium at the u.n. general assembly and while his speech was not as fiery as some of those in the past, he still did say his vision of the world's future does not include the united states or israel. listen. >> the koran -- situation of the world better incident of history humanely iran's management of the world and the self-proclaim sensors of power who have entrusted themselves to the devil. >> shepard: just yesterday the iranian president called israel a fake regime that needs to be eliminated. outside the u.n., thousands of nd many jewsallied against the voiced anger that ahmadinejad spoke at the u.n. on yom kippur, the holiest day on the jewish calendar. among them benjamin netanyahu who will address the general ablem-eye assembly tomorrow. on yom kippur eve sacred to the jewish people tyrant chose to call publicly -- those who chose to remain in the auditorium and hear those hateful words.

, the administration is very slow, even up to yesterday when the president's address to the u.n. general assembly slow to embrace this notion that it is in fact a terror attack, despite the fact -- you can't keep pointing to the film and protest when they show up with rpgs and mortars. >> that's the thing, eli, arguing against what my devil's advocate question was, they were publicly given a narrative. they were publicly linking this to that video as opposed to just saying we are investigating it. >> i think there are two different things going on right now. one is what happened in cairo? that clearly stemmed in part from a broadcaster who had jihadist sympathies talking about the internet video out in june. the second is what happened in libya. that has nothing to do, as i can tell, at this point, from the outrage over the video that started from a broadcaster in cairo. i think those two narratives kind of merged, at least in the telling of senior white house officials and other administration officials. >> bob, to you, what is the significance of this and i should point out, secretary clinton made t

"the view" gets him more votes than meeting with 10 or 15 world leaders. and the fact that he's not doing his job is irrelevant. you have to divide it into two parts. there's winning the office and there is actually being president. he's clearly said if i can win the office, i don't care what the rest of you think. let me say, what should really deeply bother americans is how does all this play out in the rest of the world? imagine you were an ambassador trying to explain to the president of egypt or the president of china or the president of germany, the chancellor of germany, you know, the president can't meet with you because there's no time in his schedule because he has to go do "the view." >> bill: as a matter of fact, his sch
